Sign the petition to build Rookwood Weir
As the saying goes, water is wealth. We need to build dams and weirs to get Central Queensland moving.
That’s why last year, the Federal Government delivered $130 million to start construction of Rookwood Weir near Rockhampton.
This project is a game changer for Central Queensland. It has the potential to create more than 2,000 new local jobs, and double farming production along the Fitzroy River. That's an extra $1 billion into our local economy!
But it’s being held up by Annastacia Palaszczuk and the Queensland Labor Government. They’re simply delaying the project to appease anti-dam Greens activists.
Enough is enough. It’s unacceptable that Annastacia Palaszczuk is denying jobs to Central Queenslanders, to appease fringe Greens activists.
We, the undersigned, urge the Queensland Government to stop denying jobs to Central Queenslanders, and to get on with the construction of Rookwood Weir.
